Alzheimer’s Disease & Blue Light

Why Block Blue Light?

Alzheimer’s disease involves the gradual destruction of the brain by plaques of aggregated beta-amyloid and tau protein resulting in memory loss and deterioration of other cognitive abilities serious enough to interfere with daily life.

However, scientific studies have revealed ways to greatly reduce your risk of developing Alzheimer’s.

For example, three studies were reported at the Alzheimer’s Conference in LA showing that by simply practicing a healthy lifestyle of, avoiding smoking, eating a balanced diet, achieving moderate exercise, limiting alcohol intake, and achieving 7-9 hours of nightly sleep, you can reduce your chance of developing Alzheimer’s.

Furthermore, in 2019 alone, more than 20 studies from all over the world document the crucial role of melatonin in preventing Alzheimer’s disease.

Natural Melatonin’s Role In Your Brain

Melatonin is a naturally occurring hormone produced by the Pineal Gland and has been shown to inhibit the aggregation of these proteins that are normally present in the brain.

As the evening sky darkens, the absence of blue light from the sun triggers the pineal gland to inject Melatonin directly into the brain, telling your body it’s time for bed.

However, due to the white light given off by screens and light bulbs, we are constantly exposed to the blue light produced by our phones, TVs, computers, and other electronic devices.

This additional exposure to blue-light prevents the pineal gland from activating properly, thus reducing melatonin production.

Why Block Blue Light?

Why Block Blue Light

Avoiding blue light in the evening increases natural melatonin, but doing this can be extremely difficult and inconvenient. 

Fortunately, by blocking the blue rays in ordinary white light for a few hours before bedtime will increase melatonin production by the pineal gland.

Our blue light sleep glasses, blue-free light bulbs, and blue light screen filters are an easy and convenient way to block 100% of all blue light in the hours before bedtime, increasing your natural melatonin production, and improving sleep quality.
